Much of our extensive portfolio of optical transceivers come fully certified and compliant with the following regulatory bodies.
GSA Schedule Contracts are subject to the Trade Agreements Act (TAA), meaning all products listed on the GSA Schedule Contract must be manufactured or “substantially transformed” in the United States or a TAA “designated country”. Proline is proud to carry optical transceivers that are products of the United States.
Network Equipment-Building System (NEBS) compliance is required by the Telecommunications Carrier Group (TCG) to confirm the reliability, safety, and quality of a vendor’s telecommunications equipment. Proline optical transceivers are NEBS Level 3 certified, which indicates that the products and equipment operate at optimum capacity while also protecting the safety of the personnel who operate it.
CE marking is a mandatory conformity marking for certain products sold within the European Economic Area (EEA) since 1985. It is in that sense similar to the FCC Declaration of Conformity used on certain electronic devices sold in the United States. The CE marking is the manufacturer's declaration that the product meets the requirements of the applicable EC directives.
ISO International Standards ensure that products and services are safe, reliable and of good quality. For businesses, they are strategic tools that reduce costs by minimizing waste and errors and increasing productivity. They help companies to access new markets, level the playing field for developing countries and facilitate free and fair global trade.
RoHS stands for Restriction of Hazardous Substances, and impacts the entire electronics industry and many electrical products as well. The original RoHS originated in the European Union in 2002 and restricts the use of six hazardous materials found in electrical and electronic products. All applicable products in the EU market since July 1, 2006 must pass RoHS compliance.
The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE Directive) together with the RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC, became European Law in February 2003. This sets restrictions upon European manufacturers as to the material content of new electronic equipment placed on the market.
